Betty Boop Is voiced by Bonnie poe in this Cartoon

and for some of the old clips features the voice of mae Questel



Betty Boop Shows a few of her past shows

she jumps into Stopping the show and preforms

Thats my weakness now, which is a helen kane song, betty boops a whole helen kane imitation anyway

Then she sings Fannie brices - Im an indian
Then she sings Hello beautiful

All preformed by mae questel

then betty boop enters the Bamboo isle
when she redoes the hula dance, with mae questels voice

then she goes into the Old man of the mountain
where she preforms

you got to hidey hi!

which sounds like ame questel but might be bonnie poe.


When betty boop appears in the cut scenes she is voiced by bonnie poe and she has her new look. her head isnt as massive as in earlier cartoons

Subject: download file error
I have noticed on several of the Betty Boop downloads a discrepancy between the listed file size and the actual file size... looks like many of the Betty Boop cartoons are the same, leaving the last few minutes of the cartoon out of the download. For instance - on this cartoon the download file size for the MPEG2 says it should be 416MB when in fact the actual file is only 397MB according to the FTP and HTTP files.

Wonder if the voices of Fannie Brice, Maurice Chavalier, and Cab Calloway were real? I think the rotoscoping of Calloway was used in another Betty Boop toon involving ghost and skeletons.

Subject: interesting
but....as a film in itself, its just a tantalising glimpse at the rest of Bettys cartoons.

A reporter interviews Max Fleischer and Betty Boop appears to show him her stuff by reprising scenes from the cartoons Stopping the Show, Bamboo Isle, and The Old Man of the Mountain. Although most of this cartoon consists of these repeated scenes, the scenes where Betty interacts with Fleischer and the reporter are lots of fun. You can tell this is pre-code, because at one point while Betty is dancing the hula in a scene from Bamboo Isle, the reporterÂs pencil makes a gesture that is very close to being obscene! I love this sort of cartoon-character-comes-to-life toon, so I enjoyed this thoroughly.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ****.
